Floral Thank You

Would you believe it, I actually got something made at my friend Jacqueline's today??? We still did loads of chatting over coffee, and took hours to do it, but I did make a card.

It's going in to her blog Make My Monday challenge which still features flowers,but this week there is a sketch.

I started with a card of 6" x 6" SU Whisper White, on which I layered a square of SU Gable Green which had been stamped with the small leaf from SU Itty Bitty Buds in Certainly Celery.I then cut 4 squares of Pretty In Pink and randomly stamped them with the 2 small flowers from IBB, and sponged the edges with Regal Rose before placing them evenly spaced on the GGreen.I then stamped the blossom branch from Garden Silhouettes onto WWhite card in Melon Mambo and CCelery,sponged edges again in RRose and layered onto CCelery card stamped as the first mat. This panel was stuck down with 3D pads with a MMambo Woodware sentiment and square gems from my stash up the right hand side.

Jacqueline's daughter Briony has brought home a gorgeous little black kitten called Louis, and his mews were so pitiful as he was trying to get into Jacqueline's craft room, it really pulls on your heart strings. I stroked him goodbye when I left, and Monty's face when I got home was one of complete and utter contempt, you'd have thought I'd taken his favourite toy away ( that's his ducky by the way!). Well like a typical male he sulked for a while but soon forgave me when I gave him a biscuit ( how fickle is that??!!).
Tomorrow he's going to get a real treat as Nathan and I are going to shave his coat to keep him cool for the summer, so who knows what he'll look like at the end of it?

That's all for now,so I hope to be back in a day or two when I can get the chance to craft again. Hope you can drop by then,Thanks for stopping today.


  1. Stamping, coffee, friends - that's my favourite kind of day! I like the pink and green colour scheme you've used for your card and those little flowers make great backgrounds!

    PS It's not just males... I'll cheer up for a biscuit too! Vx
